Oliver Lee
Cygnus & Lyra, Swans & Harps
Oliver Lee Memorial State Park and the Amateur Astronomers Group will host a star party on a moonless night featuring the constellations of Cygnus the Swan and Lyra (Harp). Cygnus is sometimes referred to as the Northern Cross and contains wisps of a supernova remnant. See corpses of one great stars now known as planetary nebula (Messier 27 and 57). The Milky Way, The Summer Triangle, Jupiter and Saturn still rein the sky.
